UNBUILDING WALLS travel fellowship

travel fellowship

As a continuation of the exhibition UNBUILDING WALLS at the 16th Architecture Biennale in Venice, the curators of the German Pavilion, the architects GRAFT and the politician Marianne Birthler, are initiating and awarding two UNBUILDING WALLS travel grants worth 3,000 Euros each.

In addition to classical research and design projects, initiatives, media documentaries or other conceptual ideas dealing with the subject of UNBUILDING WALLS will also be supported.

Carried by the idea of sensitizing the next generation to walls, boundaries and their implications, the curators would like to deepen the topic as a field of research. Students can apply with architectural and artistic projects about built, physical or strategic interventions aimed at overcoming barriers. The aim of the work may be designs and investigations on physical interventions or on the social and political significance of walls and borders.

Applications can be submitted between the 3rd of October and the 31st of December 2018 to media@graftlab.com
